The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of Washington (UW) is in an ambitious, multi-year period of growth and renewal. As part of this expansion, applications are being solicited for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in Modeling of Coastal and Estuarine Hydrodynamics. Applications are sought from qualified candidates with a strong background in fluid mechanics and estuarine / coastal processes, with an emphasis on numerical modeling. Particular areas of specialization could include, but are not limited to: numerical modeling related to environmental fluids mechanics, fluvial, estuarine and coastal processes, sediment transport, waves, restoration, and pollutant transport/fate.
The ideal candidate would leverage existing departmental and university strengths in field observations of estuarine / coastal systems, laboratory experiments, remote sensing, hydrological modeling, marine geology and physical oceanography.
Candidates should therefore have a strong foundation for interdisciplinary research and a history of successful collaborative investigations with colleagues in relevant physical, biological, chemical, and/or engineering subİ\disciplines. Successful candidates will also have a strong interest in teaching and mentoring, contributing to the existing range of courses and to the development of innovative undergraduate and graduate curricula that integrate across traditional civil and environmental engineering and science disciplines.
Candidates at the rank of Assistant Professor are strongly encouraged, but those with an established reputation as a leader in their field will also be considered at the rank of Associate Professor. A PhD, or foreign equivalent, in civil or environmental engineering, physical oceanography, or a related discipline is required.
Applications should include (1) a cover letter, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) a oneİ\page description of the candidate’s vision for research activities, (4) a oneİ\page description of the candidate’s vision for teaching, and (5) a list of at least three references. Applications must be submitted at: www.engr.washington.edu/facsearch/apply.phtml?pos_id=183
. Questions regarding the application process may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicant review will begin December 1, 2015 and will continue until the position is filled.
